Registration is open for Face to Face course on Cloud Computing and Algorithms for EO Analyses

  • Face to Face course on Cloud Computing and Algorithms for EO Analyses | October 16 – 20, 2023 | Kigali, Rwanda | This course introduces participants to Cloud Computing and its usage for Earth Observation (EO) data analyses. It starts with big geospatial data concepts and extends to Cloud Computing as one of the solutions for solving the problems of big EO data.

  • Global flood monitoring and Surface Soil Moisture anomalies | February 14, 2023, 14:00 CET | Online webinar with live-chat | The webinar will describe ways to monitor flood events and surface soil moisture on a global scale, using microwave Earth Observation data. Current research topics will be described that are relevant for use cases in Africa (e.g. subsurface scattering in arid regions). The validation of flood monitoring and of soil moisture products will be discussed.

  • fPAR as a Proxy for Yield Estimation/Forecasting | January 23, 2023, 14:00 CET | Online webinar with live-chat | The webinar provides a biological basis for crop yield estimation and within-season forecasting with Earth observation image data. We facilitate the introduction with a “big leaf” approach to light-use efficiency. Big leaf models assume canopies are homogenous and the response of the canopy to light is linear.

  • Soil Moisture from Space | March 6 – 31, 2023 | Online course with live-chat | This online course will provide participants with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge on electromagnetic radiation and its interaction with materials, (passive) radiometry and thermal emission, and (active) radar equation, backscattering and SAR image processing. It will introduce radiative transfer model (also called Tau-omega for passive microwave for land) and water-cloud model (active), as well as corresponding retrievals of soil moisture.

  • Hyper-Temporal Mapping of Agro-Ecosystems & Assessing Land Suitability | February 6 – March 3, 2023 | Online course with live-chat | From early 2000 onwards, the availability of high-quality Hyper-Temporal (HT) EO, has created an enormous number of additional possibilities to map and detect changes as required to monitor impacts. Use of the dimensions “space & time” now lets us study and work on issues that earlier remained “out-of-reach” and remained “unanswered”.

  • Flood Mapping with Sentinel-1 data | December 6, 2022, 14:00 CET | Online webinar with live-chat | This webinar will focus on the importance and use of Sentinel-1 SAR data for flood mapping. With Sentinel-1 SAR data, we can map and analyse the affected flooded areas over a region, that may be not easily accessible, and even compare them with the official flood maps available.

  • Vegetation and Drought Monitoring from Space | September 19 – October 14, 2022 | Online course with live-chat | The online course provides the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge on vegetation and drought monitoring based on satellite EO data. It introduces the general concept of EO-based vegetation/drought monitoring, shows the different types of potentially useful EO data, highlights relevant satellite sensors and freely available data products as well as explains different analysis techniques that can be employed for deriving meaningful information from satellite observations.
